Title: Evolution of FCC Structure in the Presence of 100% Lithium Ions

Abstract

A breakthrough in components for next-generation batteries could come from special materials that transform their structure to perform better over time. Handan Yildirim, a theorist for ANL's Center for Nanoscale Materials, showed that formation of highly ordered structure is actually spontaneous if the conditions for cycling are right. This simulation shows the evolution of a long-range order, as revealed by the formation of regularly ordered layers of oxygen (red circles). These well-defined layers of oxygen are separated by layers of mixed metal (Ti, blue, and Li, green) atoms that are randomly distributed.
